I tried Lyrica for about a month and didn't notice a thing. It sure seems to me like every pain doc is prescribing Lyrica almost routinely to all patients with any type of pain. I bet most of you are probably taking it or have taken it, right?
My question is this --
Has anyone noticed improvement in their condition due to Lyrica?
Sure you could've healed while taking Lyrica and think it helped you, but thath doesn't mean it did. I want bonafied answers. If Lyrica really works then stopping Lyrica should result in more pain, and then resuming treatment should reduce the pain once again. Can anyone truly say that Lyrica is helpful to them with this amount of scientific certainty? If so please describe your condition.
I know it was orinally prescribed for shingles and it probably works well for that, but docs prescribing it for back pain on a daily basis seems like some kind of quackery to me. Perhaps I am wrong and I should give it another try so I am willing to seriously listen to any statements claiming that it is a legitamite back pain treatment.
